A recent build of Windows 10 comes with a new feature - the transparent Start menu and taskbar now have a blur effect! The blur effect was present initially in Windows Vista and was very much loved by users for looking like authentic glass. Window frame borders and the title bar also had this effect. Windows 7 extended the effect to the Taskbar. In Windows 8, Microsoft removed the blur effect and kept only transparency. Many users did not like this change, however, with Windows 10, Microsoft has restored it partially.
